About the Sadhana weekender

Led by Kate, our Sadhana Yoga weekender in September has the primary focus on you. Immerse yourself in yogic practices, nurture yourself and dive deep into the practice. Enjoy the surrounding Devon countryside, eat delicious wholesome food, take a sauna and find the space to breathe.

There will be a full daily programme of yoga practice as outlined below. Kate will host the weekend and hold the space. Please note this weekend is not suitable for complete beginners - at least one year of practice is recommended.

Just two miles from Totnes, Eden Rise provides a beautiful environment for this Sadhana weekend. Neighbouring land includes wooded fringes, the Harbourne river, sculptures and shrines and the Santa Rosa labyrinth.

Client Reviews

My favourite yoga retreat so far. Just back from a weekend at Eden Rise in Totnes. A lovely group and fabulous teacher. The weekend was well set up for a good balance of classes, workshops, rest and scrumptious meals. it was a blessing, very grounding and nurturing. Thank you. I will be booking up for more retreats with you!
The yoga retreat with Kate was truly amazing, this is first retreat I’ve been on and I couldn’t have for a better unforgettable first experience. I loved the combination of yoga, chanting, singing and meditation.
I had a fantastic time. Kate is an amazing teacher, the others on the retreat were lovely and the setting was perfect!
